<Denommus>another thing: sorry if that is too basic, but I still have little knowledge on it, but is Guix similar to other Linux package managers in that the package must be in some repository, or can I define how to build my dependencies (including where to fetch them from) locally?
<taylanub>Denommus: Guix "normally" compiles things locally as per the given recipe, but since Guix packages are 100% reproducible and identified by a hash, a build farm can produce precompiled packages which Guix can download and use as a substitute -- unsurprisingly these packages are called "substitutes" in Guix terminology
<Denommus>taylanub: ah, cool. Then it seems that Guix is just perfect for a development-level generic package manager (or whatever I should call this kind of package manager)
***Denommus` is now known as Denommus
<jmd>Is there something like substitute* but wich takes literals instead of regexps?
<taylanub>jmd: $ doesn't have a special meaning in a Scheme string, do you mean a string whose contents have some special meaning? e.g. if you mean a regexp, then you'd need "foo\\\\$" to construct the regexp 'foo\\$' meaning you escape the regexp-meaning of $
<taylanub>jmd: as for editing files from Guile .. maybe look into its Elisp implementation! :P
<taylanub>hrm, possibly it doesn't have buffers yet, I can't figure out right now
<jmd>What sort of bandwidth should I expect to hydra?
